UK dental world reacts to COVID-19 vaccine approval

latest covod-19 updates

UK has become the first country in the world to approve a clinically tested COVID-19 vaccine after the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) authorised the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for emergency use.

The vaccine is set to be rolled out from next week onwards, and elderly people and NHS staff are to be prioritised—although details on how dental professionals, for example, fit into this plan are yet to be finalised.

The UK government announced that it has ordered 40 million doses of the vaccine, which has been shown to be 95% effective in Phase III clinical trials.
